Both Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho haven’t really enjoyed their time at Barca and are now both linked with a move away from the Camp Nos as the Catalans are looking to sign Lautaro Martinez and Neymar.

It’s hard to imagine both the Frenchman and the Brazilian more or less giving up their Champions League ambitions for the next few years to play for the Magpies. Not to mention that A Bola isn’t the most reliable source of information both on Barca and the Premier League.

Nevertheless, the coronavirus crisis might significantly change the whole landscape of European football, so such a move can’t be completely ruled out,

Antoine Griezmann reportedly has no intention of leaving Barcelona even if the club manage to secure the signings of both Lautaro Martinez and Neymar.

The Frenchman appears to be eager to fight for the place in the starting line-up as he still wants to succeed at the Camp Nou stadium and win trophies with the Catalan club.

Griezmann has featured mostly on the left flank of Barca’s attack this term and he’s already bagged 14 goals in 37 matches.

As for Coutinho, Even though Quique Setien has recently opened the door for his return, Barcelona reportedly remain determined to sell the Brazilian midfielder. Chelsea have been so far considered the main candidates to land the 27-year-old.

Coutinho is currently on loan at Bayern Munich. The Bavarians can make his move permanent for €120m. However, they are expected to let the Brazilian return to Camp Nou.
